TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Timbercreek Senior Mortgage Investment Corporation (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed a final prospectus (the "Prospectus") dated December 14, 2012, with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, and a receipt therefor has been obtained. A copy of the Prospectus will be available on SEDAR ( www.sedar.com). The Prospectus qualifies the distribution (the "Offering") of up to 10,152,285 Class A shares ("Class A Shares") or up to 10,000,000 Class B shares ("Class B Shares") of the Company (or any combination thereof, subject to the maximum offering amount), at a price of $9.85 per Class A Share and $10.00 per Class B Share, for total gross proceeds of $100,000,007. The Class B Shares are designed for fee-based accounts with a registered dealer or institutional investors and will not be listed on a stock exchange, but are convertible into Class A Shares. The outstanding Class A Shares are listed and posted for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "MTG". The Offering is scheduled to close on or about January 8, 2013. The syndicate of agents is led by CIBC, Raymond James Ltd., RBC Capital Markets and TD Securities Inc. and includes GMP Securities L.P., National Bank Financial Inc., BMO Capital Markets, Scotiabank, Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd., Manulife Securities Incorporated and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agents"). The Company has granted to the Agents an option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable in whole or in part for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Offering, to purchase, in accordance with and subject to applicable laws, an aggregate of up to 15% of the number of Class A Shares and/or Class B Shares issued at the closing of the Offering at a price of $9.85 per Class A Share and $10.00 per Class B Share. The Prospectus qualifies the distribution of the Over-Allotment Option and the Class A Shares and/or Class B Shares issuable on the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. If the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, and assuming only Class A Shares are issued under the Offering, the total price to the public under the maximum offering will be $115,000,000. The Company will use a substantial amount of the net proceeds of the Offering to pay down amounts owed under its credit facility. The Company intends to use substantially all of the remaining balance of the net proceeds to fund investments in, and other costs associated with, first mortgages with customized terms ("Customized First Mortgages") in a manner consistent with the investment objectives and the investment strategies of the Company, with any remaining balance of the net proceeds being used by the Company for general working capital purposes.
